How a Engine Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle's engine using the information or symptoms you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Depending on the symptoms the mechanic will take a good look at your vehicles:
- Drive & timing belts (cambelt, serpentine belts);
- Camshaft & crankshaft;
- Spark plugs; or
- Oil pan.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

When your coolant is leaking its often as a result of a:

  • Perforated radiator tank or core
  • Bad radiator hoses
  • Bad water pump
  • Faulty radiator cap

Popular services linked to a Engine Inspection:

Fuel Pressure Regulator Replacement

To pump fuel from your gas tank to your engine, your car has a fuel pump. In order to make sure that your fuel pump sends the right pressure fuel to the engine, your car has a fuel pressure regulator. When it plays up, your car can get too much or too little fuel and this can cause issues with your driving.

Radiator Bottom Hose Replacement

In order to send your cooled coolant from the radiator to the engine, it has to travel through the radiator bottom hose. This hose is prone to wearing out over time, this is due to the constant pressure and heat cycles. You don’t want coolant going on the ground instead of the engine, so get the bottom hose fixed as soon as possible.

Exhaust Repair

An exhaust pipe is responsible for carrying combustion gases out of your car. More technically it connects from the exhaust manifold to the muffler. It is usually made out of steel but they can also be stainless steel or aluminised steel. Because of the acids and grease the exhaust pipe carries it is one of the few parts on your car that wears even when the car is not running.

Oil Filter Housing Replacement

Your oil filter is critical to your engine’s maintenance. It needs something to screw into and somewhere to get the oil from. This is where the oil filter housing comes into play. The oil filter housing has the simple existence of holding the oil filter and feed lines. Most cars will never need to worry about the housing, the oil filter is obviously the most serviced item of the assembly. However, if there’s a problem with the oil filter housing, it needs to be fixed.
